Learning, Memory and Synaptic Plasticity
External Event - 23rd to 26th Apr 2017
This conference is the first of the upcoming Brain Conferences to be held in 2017.
Learning, Memory and Synaptic Plasticity is now open for registration. It is to be held in Rungstedgaard, North Copenhagan, Denmark on the 23rd-26th April.
These meetings are organised by FENS in collaboration with The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.
The Brain Prize was awarded in 2016 for “ground-breaking research on the cellular and molecular basis of Long-Term Potentiation and the demonstration that this form of synaptic plasticity underpins spatial memory and learning.”
Research on LTP and LTD, and their possible functions is now extending to include diverse aspects of memory encoding and consolidation, including areas of emotional learning in brain structures beyond the hippocampus. There is also growing interest in how dysfunction of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity is a likely contributor to a variety of neurological and psychiatric diseases.
The aim of this Brain Conference is to bring together world experts to discuss the major issues in the field.
